Another dinner in Causeway Bay. In the beginning, my friend has chosen Paradise Dynasty (again), since we had just been there 2 days ago, we would like to try another restaurant. We didn’t want to be too far away, so our second choice was in the same building Lee Theatre - Wu Kong.
The place is mentioned in the Michelin guide. The local Open Rice Food site gives an okay note. The place is situated on the 17th floor, it had an interesting view of the new/old Causeway Bay.
Wild vegetables mixed with bean curd (cold dish) - quite a classic in Shanghai cooking
Stirred fried lamb with mixed wild mushrooms and chili - one of the highlight of the dinner
Xiao Long Bao - alright, better than the XLB in Din Tai Fung (Tsim Sha Tsiu) we ate a year ago
Fried string beans with minced pork and chili - a dish from Sichuan cuisine
Traditional sliced cold pork with Shanghainese cucumber and preserve vegetables
Stuffed bean curd with mixed vegetables
It was a technically impressive dish, for vegetables lovers.
Braised pork feet - another highlight of the dinner
Shanghainese fried noodle (no photo)
Rice balls in wine sauce
Bill for 4 diners.
The dinner has a good balance of vegetables and meat, a tasty modern Shanghainese meal.
